Matcha Tea Latte

I often post Snapchats of my morning matcha tea lattes and every time I get questions about how I make them. I thought I’d answer that once and for all with this post! The long answer is that I’ve tried every tactic out there, boiling the milk and then using a frother, buying a fancy bamboo whisk, and the works. At the end of the … Read the post >>

Grilled Pineapple Sundaes + DIY Pineapple Vase

I have a newfound love for pineapple. Whenever the weather starts getting warm, I can’t get enough of it. I caught up with Kelly Boyer, the amazing founder of Paleta, one of my favorite juice + meal delivery companies, to see if she could help me come up with new ways to enjoy one of my favorite summer flavors. Her answer was better than I could … Read the post >>

Better Than Chinese Takeout

When I interviewed for my job at Nourish Snacks over two years ago, I remember feeling intimidated to meet the company’s co-founder, Joy Bauer. I knew her from her gig as the TODAY Show’s nutritionist and when I found out that I’d have to put a presentation together for her and the team, I had a major freak out. Then I met Joy, and my fears melted. … Read the post >>

Mini Kale Frittatas

Because of my insane schedule over the past few months, I had adapted my cooking routine drastically, and not in a good way. Instead of spending the time to make a beautiful meal for my husband and myself every night, I end up rushing to create something not so great, or ordering in. That gets old, fast. Over the last few weeks, however, I’ve created … Read the post >>

Tofu Bahn Mi

Things in my life have been more than crazy lately (more on that another day). In the past I’ve done meal delivery services of every size shape and form but have never been particularly happy about them. Cooking the meals often felt more like a burden than an easy fix. About a month ago, I got an email with an offer from Marley Spoon so decided … Read the post >>

Campari Cocktails

Cocktail shaker / Jigger Whenever I go to Italy, I come home with a renewed love for Negroni’s, a colorful drink with an acquired taste. But once that taste is acquired, it’s hard to ignore. I love drinking this Italian cocktail all year round. Whenever I see it on a menu, I can’t help but order one! One being the operative word as too many of … Read the post >>

Watermelon Granita

Growing up, my family spent many a summer in Forte dei Marmi, an adorable beach town in Tuscany (we’re Italian). My favorite part of each afternoon was when I was allowed to go to the restaurant of our beach club and order myself a granita which is essentially a fancy snow cone. I’d change it up day to day between fragola (strawberry), limone (lemon), and mentha … Read the post >>

Chia Acai Bowl

Açai bowls have been all the rage at juice shops and health food restaurants for some time now, but in a pinch an at-home version can be just as good if not better! Everyone has their own version of this now classic breakfast bowl and I’m no different. My recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, and oh-so-delicious. I eat it as a quick breakfast, pre-workout snack, or after-dinner dessert. I’ve … Read the post >>
